Psalm 95:7- “For He is our God…”
How personal is God to you? Is He specifically your God? Or is He the God of your parents, culture, or obligation? Is He privy to the deepest corners of your heart, or is kept at a cold, formal distance?
Before you can make the full beauty of the Lord your own experience, He must be, fully and completely, your God. You must take hold of Him and claim Him as your own in order to realize all that He could be for you. Do not only experience Him at arm’s length. Lay hold of His goodness and draw Him near to you. Claim Him so completely as your own that at His coming you will be able to joyfully say “This is my God who I have waited for!”.
